Besides his weapons and bribery trial in New York, Sean "Puffy" Combs is facing legal woes in Los Angeles, where a woman named Inge Bongo says that a Beverly Hills home she rented from the rap entrepreneur for $25,000 a month was "infested with insects, rodents and vermin." In her lawsuit filed Thursday in U.S. District Court, Bongo also alleges that a broken front door lock forced her to get in and out of the residence through a dog door. Combs's spokeswoman, Nathalie Moar, told the Associated Press that Bongo's suit is "completely frivolous" and that the former tenant (she allegedly moved out in August) owes Combs $50,000 in back rent and about $40,000 for wreckage to the house.
